  • Short Summary

    A cross country running championship is won by Warwickshire.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Inter county c.c. championship. Won by Warwickshire. Best teams from 15 counties competed."

    Chesham Park,

    M/S runners lined up, jumping about waiting for the start. They set off, and the camera tracks the race around the first part from a car. The pack is then seen from a low angle, spread out, crossing a hilltop. They then make their way down a field with a steep incline. The runners then run through a gate and some sheep look on from the foreground. The winners pose and look puffed out.

    Note: The shot of the sheep looks like role reversal for sheep dog trials - just add a whistle.
